WARNING:The last photo has some stickers on my sewing machine that have swear words in them!!!

Awhile back, I made a whole mess of finger puppets for my boyfriend's children. I had so much fun making them, and they used minimal amounts of materials that I already had on hand.Pretty much just felt, embroidery floss, some ribbon, and buttons. The kids loved them, too.

The jelly is my favorite, I used glow-in-the-dark embroidery floss on him, and I crocheted his tentacles using mixed strands of variegated and glow floss with a tiny hook, it's just a chain stitch.

I was going to make a wolf to go with the three little pigs, but I had my heart set on a grey wolf, and discovered that I was out of grey felt. Will have to make one soon!

Group of monsters!

So much cuteness packed into this post. Love it all! The action shot rules. I never would have noticed the swear words if you hadn't pointed them out.

Chubby kid-fingers are the best!

These are really cool; I particularly like the jellyfish.  I remember that I had a Christmas craft book in my childhood that had a project for similar finger puppets, with each one based on a letter of the alphabet, for a total of 26 puppets (that'd be a lot of work).

Thanks, the jelly is my favorite, too Smiley Especially since he glows in the dark. I may be an adult, but I am still a sucker for anything that glows in the dark. I really like the idea of makinv a whole alphabet worth of puppets, but I agree that it would be a lot of work - maybe just a little too monotonous for me!
